Vactrain Project Announcement
Today the Ascendancy announced the reveal of a new global construction plan. The CCD will build an interconnect, submersible tube structure that will connect the continents to each other. Through the thousands of miles will course vactrains, which use vacuum pressures to allow magnetized trains to travel at incredibly fast speeds due to the lack of air resistance. 

Imagine a 45 minute train commute that carries workers from London to New York. These trains have the capability to travel up to 5,000 miles per hour. Initial plans will begin with a travel speed closer to 1,200 miles per hour. The ride is expected to be as smooth a ride as traveling through space. These pipes are planned to traverse Australia, Asia, Africa, South America. Immediate plans to connect to North America have not yet been solidified.
